Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners are very aware that their modality will not be the most appropriate in every case of infertility.  Patients who come to our clinic usually fall into several categories.  Within these categories there are some who have already tried IVF, as well as those to whom we suggest IVF as being useful.  The patients can be divided roughly into five groups:

1) Couples who are having difficulty conceiving but are not yet ready to use “the big guns.” Some of these patients become pregnant with the help of TCM and some move into Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) after a certain time.

2) Couples wanting “natural medicine.” Some patients who consult us do so because they have a philosophical attachment to the use of natural medicines and a fear of doctors, surgery, and drugs. In some cases, these couples have made a choice not to use ART because they are concerned about possible risk to the baby.

Many of these couples are committed to maintaining their own good health and are often well informed about their options.  If their infertility is “unexplained,” often TCM will uncover a possible cause, and because these patients are generally healthy, compliant, and motivated, the results are often positive.  However, in some of cases (for example, tubal blockage or very low sperm count), it is not in the best interest of the couple to be treated with TCM, since their only real hope of conception is to embrace what modern medicine has to offer.  Often hearing such advice from an acupuncturist can help break down fears, and referral to a compassionate specialist in ART is the next step.

3) Patients for whom IVF has failed or not appropriate. This group contains a large proportion of patients seeking Chinese medicine treatment and includes women who:

  • Have completed 3-5 IVF cycles without success (most IVF successes are within the first three cycles)
  • Showed no response or a paradoxical response to the drugs used during IVF
  • Are over 42 (IVF success is rare in this age group, unless donor eggs are used)

 

4) Couples who are in the process of preparing for IVF. Some couples who are planning to use IVF or to return to IVF after a break, wish to prepare themselves (and their gametes) by using therapy that enhances their health in the hope of increasing chances of success.

5) Couples who seek TCM treatment for infertility and wish to try everything to help their cause, including TCM and ART.

COVID-19 PROTOCOL

Central New Jersey Acupuncture & Wellness Clinic will not be treating any known, or suspected, cases of Covid-19 in the office.  If you are sick, please wait for 2 weeks until you are symptom free before making an appointment.

If you have been exposed to someone with Covid-19 in the past 14 days, we will not be able to accept you as a patient at this time. If you have traveled outside of the US in the past 30 days we will not be able to accept you as a patient at this time.

Following are our new procedures:

  1. You will be pre-screened via phone prior to your appointment. 

  2. When you arrive at the office, please wait in your car and call the office. You will be told when it is safe to come in.

  3. Upon entering the office, you will be required to hand sanitize. We will do a quick temperature check, if you are over 100.4F, you will be asked to leave and call your doctor. Temperature checks will be done at each visit.

  4. All patients are required to wear a face covering of some kind the entire time you are in the office, for the duration of the treatment. We have masks available if you need one.

  5. You will be taken to the treatment room directly. No waiting in the waiting room.

  6. Follow up appointments can be scheduled prior to leaving the office.   You may also email info@cNJacu.com to set up your next appointment

  2. High tough surfaces- door handles, light switches, call buttons, etc will be sanitized between patients

  3. Providers will wear masks and gloves while cleaning

What we need from you:

  1. Please do not bring anyone with you to your appointment.

  2. Please DO NOT bring unnecessary items into the office with you, i.e., purses, bags, water bottles, iPads, etc..  The fewer items you have the less likely we will have any issues with contamination.

  3. Please DO NOT come to your appointment if you have, or have had, any cold or flu symptoms in the past 14 days, have traveled recently, or have any of the symptoms that are associated with Covid-19.   This applies if you have a household member with any symptoms.  We know that there are many silent carriers, but our goal is to minimize any exposure of known causes. Instead, call us to reschedule.

If you are uncomfortable coming to the office for any reason, we understand. 

If any of us tests positive for Covid-19, the office will be closed for 14 days, disinfected, and all patients who have been in 14 days prior will be notified.
